i was at the Philly show at the beginning of this tour and to say it was pretty rough around the edges is an understatement. Overall this is a much more together set than the Philly show. The Dead are certainly grooving and Dylan although ever elusive is much more front and center here.
Subject: Dylan's killing it!!!
Subject: Knocking on Bob Dylan?
IF you dont like Bob Dylan or his style/sound/songs/voice, whatever. If you dont get it, thats understandable & that's totally cool. but to criticize his musicianship & professionalism by listening to a recording is just WRONG
my 2 cents.
Subject: I WAS There
We saw the pedal steel guitar on stage and didn't think much of it 'til Jerry sat down behind it for the Baby Tonight and didn't see it there at Anaheim. It was premeditated!!
A very nice Highway 61 done as a slower shuffle instead of the slightly off-kilter, speedy album version and some nice regular 6 string slide work from Jerry.
Try telling people that "Mr. Jones" is actually called 'Ballad of a Thin Man' and watch them amend their set list to "Ballet of a Thin Man" and sigh heavily as you offer them the definition of ballad (did i stutter? Do I have some sort of inexplicable accent that turns a voiced consonant into a vowel? Do you think ballet is pronounced with a consonant at the end?). Also consider that this was YEARS before Counting Crows "Mister Jones".
These shows were done near the start one of the 4 best eras of live Dead ever* and coming on the heels of Dylan's revitalization after touring with Tom Petty breathed new life into both Dylan and the Dead.
1.) 1969-spring 1970
2.) Academy of Music Europe send-off shows 1972-"last ever" October 1974
3.) 1977 (All of it, you can not find a bad show in 1977 (I dare you)}.
4.) December '86-Brent's "departure" 1990.
But during this particular performance. Um. Is he even on the same planet with the rest of us ?
Being the most F'd-up artist at a GDead gig is quite an accomplishment, to say the least.
That being said, I still would have loved to have been there. :-)
